I need to setup delayed emailing for a distribution list of about 200 email addresses.  My goal is to be able to set up the emailing in the evening and have it set to send at 7:00 am the next day.  I have followed the instructions on the microsoft website and have made sure to leave the out look client open.  I lock the computer at the end of the day instead of logging out.  For some reason outlook sends the email right away instead of waiting for the designated time and date.  This problem only occurs when I use a distribution list; individually set delayed emails send correctly.  I am running windows XP Pro Service Pack 3 with up to date patches and my email connects to a hosted exchange server.  Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance

were you following this article - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/delay-or-schedule-sending-e-mail-messages-HP001232817.aspx

and you mention that you are connected to hosted exchange, is that connecting with mapi or pop?

Determined that the root problem was with the distribution list itself.  Will recreate distribution list.
